    Does AirVPN use dynamic IP allocation ?
    Thanks in advance

    Best to ask on Air's forum. I know they have an entry IP different from an exit IP, and they use crowding, so the exit IP is the same for all. I just disconnected and reconnected and I get the same 10.x.x.x *internal* IP, but this is getting out of my wheelhouse as far as knowledge goes.

    PD

    ok thanks for response :thumb:
    I will inquire in there forums
    I'm wondering whats best for anonymity...
    thinking about it I suspect a shared static IP is, especially if shared by many users... but then again....o_O lol
    The reason I ask is I'm thinking of changing providers, my current provider uses a dynamic IP system and I'm trying to weigh up the pros and cons.

    Shared static IPs offer best anonymity. You want your own IP only for running a server.

    OK thanks
    Hmm so AirVPN is starting to look more and more attractive, I'm still a little confused though o_O
    Here follows a quote from my current provider -

    Having seen this would a shared IP still be prefered ?
    I apologize for my lack of knowledge

    Who's your current provider?

    Those are shared IPs. They're just "randomly" connecting you to their various VPN exit nodes, each of which is shared.

    We're all learning :)

    I'm currently with Anonine, up to now I've been happy with speeds and service, they do state they keep no logs.
    I'm contemplating moving on mainly as there seems to be a glaring lack of info I can find about them, nothing good, nothing bad... I suppose this could be a good thing.
    I'm leaning towards AirVPN, I know they have a good name here at Wilders also I would like to set the account up a little more securely than I set up my existing Anonine account ie register via TOR, pay with BC etc
    I think this is pretty important considering how things are going in my part of the world :eek:

    Thanks for clarifying this for me :thumb:
